High slits. High shine. High heels. Sequins. Ruffles. Bare backs. Long sleeves. Nudes. Blacks. Reds. Greens. No, I’m not reciting the dictionary randomly, I’m just reminiscing about that time we all went to the Oscars, remember?

Champagne pouring off the skies, Oscars thrown in our heads post-brilliant-performances, rubbing elbows with the coolest of the cool. Taking selfies with Leo & Tom Hardy. You know, the regular Sunday night. One thing about me is my capacity to dream, so in case you can’t get high on wishes and what if’s… leave it to this idiot, aka moi to do it for ya’.

Oh my dear fashion lovers, but you can laugh and smile all you want at the imaginary journeys I usually embark on, but at least I got your back and I got it all figured out. Fashion wise, dresses wise, beautiful evening gowns wise. All of it.

We might have skipped the Oscars and the Globes this year, but let’s not forget we’re beautiful gorgeous women on this Earth and that means we’re always attending all sorts of events that require elegant gowns and beautiful evening dresses on our fab bods. Springs and summers mean weddings, posh parties, reunions, proms, evening cocktails, red carpet events.

So when I came across OK Dress brand I was like ‘Oh, okay… well that’s it.’ They have it all: prom dresses, cocktail dresses, wedding dresses, and YES evening dresses too, which is my fave category cause it really makes me feel as if I am owning any red-carpet-inspired-event I’d go to.

Circumstance has it that I do have to attend 3 such events in the near future, and if the Oscars have taught me anything it’s: 1) You can never go wrong with mermaid dresses, 2) black is always an option, but if you dare… strong coloured dresses are even better, and 3) if you’re not attending a wedding, wear a white gown, it’s the most elegant piece ever.

OK dress is really an online hub for evening situations and events and it’s always packed with fab dresses, promotions and discounts, so make sure you check it out and keep it in mind for your future events. What I love about their shop is that they make your gown custom, in any colour so if you like one design but wish it came in black or red – DONE!

How to dress like you’re going to the Oscars? 

Classic black dress. Always a winner.

Red dresses are amazing for IRL evening events.

White dresses are the best for elegant evening situations, sans weddings, cause we wouldn’t want to upstage the bride right? Here’s one of my fave – white evening dress.

Burgundy evening dresses are my new obsession. Nothing is quite elegant as that burgundy dress Blake Lively once wore. Perfection.

Grey dresses look amazing against sequins and sparkles and this grey evening dress is absolutely stunning.

Green dresses for evening are an absolute winner, with a great design and accessories they are the best.

A beautiful evening dress is always key to looking and feeling amazing on a special evening, but never forget the Devil’s also in the details: go for fab jewellery but never overdo it for evening (either earrings, or necklaces, or bracelets). In this case less is more. Perfect make up and effortless hair and off you go.

No lusty luscious sin reference here, just pure don’ts and major faux pas on the love-and-sex-celebration day. Not that we need a day to celebrate l’amor. I am one of those women who rarely make a big fuss about Valentine’s Day, but when I do, damn, I try harder than some pretty lingerie and an infectious smile. A lot of people though, are not on the frequency as moi. Actually, most of them. On this very red passionate day the girls & boys are headless chickens drunk on love running around town shopping for the sweetest presents ever to gift themselves later on.

It’s great I tell you. It’s beautiful even. Dinner planned at some fancy schmancy restaurant, pretty dress on, pretty knickers, high heels, great perfume, and your date rising to the effort and occasion. But what happens when not everything’s going according to plan? God forbid of course.

Because let’s face it chicas… sometimes this day is one of the worst days ever. And we’ve all got our stories for that.

tumblr_nt2b0rKsk81udhg3lo1_500

WHAT ‘sin’ could, would, or did ruin your Valentine’s day? 

Did the ignoramus take you to the worst restaurant ever? Was he/she on their phone all night? Did he/she go through 0 efforts for a gift? Did he/she not get you flowers? Are any of these deal-brakers for you?

Below is a brilliant infographic by and from the wonderful team over at BloomNation about these deadly sins. I had a blast going through it.

The last sin though, is courtesy of moi. I’ll tell you the story of the 7th sin below. On one condition tho: you share yours in the comments below. Seriously, it can’t be worse than mine.

TheFashionTag 7 Sins

My-kinda-of-a-funny-story-of-being-stood-up. Valentine’s day and shit. There was once an idiot who thought that making plans with me for Valentine’s Day was mandatory but sticking to them was optional. I know, what a fucking retard. And I, what an idiot. We dated in a very serious committed thing for half a year when Valentine’s Day came our way like a red signal for me, you know, to bloody open my eyes and read the writings on the wall. So there I was… pretty and dolled up, waiting to be swayed off my feet, which were looking sexy in heels btw, waiting to do Valentine’s Day by the book you know. Well, I was swayed alright, right into reality, as the ignoramus never showed up, and I wasted a great day to get drunk and spend it with those who actually gave a damn. I even had a great hair day that Valentine’s. What happened next? Lousy excuse, sugarcoated by a last minute scenario of why the poor bastard couldn’t make it, and a late Valentine’s Day celebration. Yeah. It sucked. He sucked. Hence the break-up outcome later.

Now your turn.

We all love to watch old black and white Italian movies where we can see those amazingly looking women walking down the street looking gorgeous. And we do wish just a little bit to be like them as well, but sometimes we just can’t understand what it takes to look like a real Italian lady.

Well, I was lucky! I managed to get a few basic, but truly best fashion tips from real contemporary Italian women who agreed to share their secrets! And of course, bellow you will find them all!

Italian-women-style-13 Italian-women-style Italian-women-style-4

Build your outfit around one statement piece
Italian women really know how to pull a slightly extravagant but truly fashionable look, and they achieve that by starting their outfit from one statement piece.That can be either the top with tons of ruffles or some bright colored pants which catch the eye and create visual interest like no other piece of your outfit.

It can also be accessories like huge earrings, shoes or a purse. But the rule is that you should keep just one bold item while others are more neutral and quiet. This way you will not overshadow that one incredible piece you have and achieve real Italian style as well!

italian-beauty-looks italian-style Italian-women-style-6

Don’t hesitate to invest in high-quality basic wardrobe elements
Forget about buying cheap clothing that will last for one season. Better start investing in classical and essential wardrobe elements that are high-quality and will last almost for the lifetime! Moreover, neutral-colored basics are definitely the ones to choose. Black pants, dresses, and white shirts and so on – all that should be in your wardrobe, and all of that should be in exquisite quality as well. If you have such clothing, you will never look cheap, always be able to mix and match perfectly and indeed look like a stylish and effortless woman.

Although, if investing sometimes can be a problem then check some of these JCPenney coupons and offers and get a discount on designer made clothing after a few clicks online. That will surely help you to keep up with this fashion tip!

thefashiontagcom-56b0b8457c91c-2

Italian-women-style-1 Italian-women-style-2 Italian-women-style-5

Don’t save that good stuff for special occasions
We all do the same thing – we tend to buy something special and cute and then save it for some special occasion that might never come! Don’t do that, say all Italian fashionistas – every day is your special occasion and you should celebrate your life by dressing up.

You might never get that special occasion you don’t even know when it will be and so never get a chance to show off those amazing jeans you bought! Celebrate life Italian-style and show the best of you every day no matter.

thefashiontagcom-56b0b84443f9e

Good lingerie is essential
You can try to look like million bucks as much as you want, but will never achieve that if you wear bad undergarments underneath your expensive clothing. Therefore, if you really wish to take a good advice from Italian women then invest in good lingerie. Good undergarments will make your feel sexier, more confident and improve your posture as well.

So it always pays off to get rightly fitted intimates. After all, it will help you create that woman’s secret that nobody knows and which men found so attractive. Trust me!

Italian-women-style-3 Italian-women-style-8 Italian-women-style-9 Italian-women-style-10 Italian-women-style-14

It is all about the glam
And finally, take notice that Italian women are not afraid of a little bit of sequins, glitter, or gemstones. In fact, this can be quite an excellent way to create a stylish look. But be careful and don’t go overboard with that.

Italian women believe that a woman should shine for every occasion whether it is with the help of a sequin skirt, a pair of cute glitter shoes, or big accessories. Just remember other rules above and match those glam pieces with more neutral ones for a sophisticated and elegant look even an Italian lady will envy you!

How we look can be very important to us. Unfortunately, we all will have to deal with wrinkles at some point in our lives. It’s a reality we all have to face. The older we get, usually it’s the worse it gets for our skin and some turn to surgery to try and turn back the clock of time. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many skin tightening procedures available to fit our budgets. Treating wrinkles sooner rather than later means less drastic measures need to be taken. Take a moment to learn what factors can affect your options.

skin-of-all-ages.beauty

Where do Wrinkles Come From?

We all know that wrinkles happen as we age, but do you understand exactly why it’s happening? When we are young, our body produces plenty of essential ingredients to keep our skin healthy. Elastin keeps the skin tight by helping cells to stick tight together. Collagen fills the cell so it stays strong and thick. Working together, these substances keep the skin rejuvenated. Somewhere in our mid twenties, our body slows the production of these items and skin slowly begins to thin and stretch and over time, it sags, forming a wrinkle.

How Skin Types Can Affect Treatments? 

No two people are exactly the same and the same can be said for their skin. Some have oily skin while others can have very dry skin. Then there is sensitive skin that doesn’t react well to any irritants. For example, if a treatment is too harsh, like chemical peels, it can harm the skin and break out or be damaged. The type of skin has to be taken into account when selecting a wrinkle reduction procedure.

Issues With Skin Tones 

Anyone with darker colored skin has to be concerned with reactions to several different treatments. A procedure involving something like a laser device won’t work well if the settings on the device aren’t properly adjusted to dark skin tones. It operates by using a specific light frequency and the standard machine was not developed to handle dark tones. If you make certain the technician modifies the settings or uses a device specifically tuned to dark tones, you should be very pleased with the final results. It’s just a matter of making sure it’s the right equipment.

Other treatments may not be suitable at all for darker skin. The pigmentation in dark skin does not react well at all with procedures involving skin irritants like dermabrasion, chemical peels, or Botox injections. Any of these can result in acne breakouts, post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation, or scarring. If you have dark skin, research side affects and risk. You may just need to steer clear of certain treatments entirely rather than take a chance. With so many other choices, there is a procedure out there for you. You’ll just need to dig a little to find it.

botox-for-the-skin skin-tightening-treatments-1 skin-treatments

Start With a Gentler Procedure

If you just don’t feel comfortable taking a risk or just can’t decide if your skin type or skin tone can handle a treatment, consider something gentler. In recent years, radio frequency treatments use sound waves to reduce the sags in your skin, giving you a rejuvenated look. This method does not carry the same issue with pigmentation or skin types, meaning it can be used on all types of skin. Because it isn’t as aggressive, you won’t see changes in your skin right away. The mild procedure is meant to work slowly, so you need to wait for your results. Since the risks are minimal, it might be the right treatment for you.

Make sure you research and find the best professionals for this, and any procedures are done in clinics or those super posh and medically advised facilities – Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center is a good start.

We’re not gonna stay young forever, and thank God for that, but it doesn’t mean we can’t look fresh while growing wiser, right? Whatever you do, do it, try whatever you need to to feel amazing in your skin, but never overdo it. Wrinkles are after all a beauty mark of a life well lived. :)

What? It’s winter already? Gosh how time flies when you’re having fun. Or growing older. I’ll take the latter these days, as I feel a bit of wiseness too rubbing off on me. The fun part, in my case happens by default, and this year’s been everything altogether, wrapped up in the most chaotic and neurotic bits. There was fun alright, but it was all the highs and the lows too.

So what was high you might ask? Aside from my ego, and my head I was pretty lucky and blessed this year. Nawww. I’m not gonna get all cheesy on you right now and profess my love for 2015, and my promise to 2016 to be slimmer, and healthier, and not swear so much, and be a tamer version of myself. Nope. That ain’t gonna fucking happen. Because you see… I’m fire through and through and THAT I could never change. In fact it’s a wildness and a feistiness I wouldn’t trade for the world. Sure it comes with its share of storms and mistakes and bad habits, a filthy mouth, and some other beautiful misfortunes under my belt, but… to hell with musts, and do’s and all the rules. #speakinginrhymesnow

One of my beautiful highs this winter was having the massive chance to be a jewellery designer, when KOSHMAN brand asked me to help them design a man ring so dope it’ll make you feisty, strong, and everything in between. It was one helluva process, which I’m so humbled, grateful and proud of. And the RING? DAYUMN. DAYUMN. DAYUMN. You might have seen the editorial and story on it here, on another December day, which was more gloomy and foggy.

Hence today’s post: sunny December day when I decided to take my Dragon Skin Ring out on a date in the sun. Other rings joined, alongside my my long coat and turtleneck sweater.

Uh-huh-uh-huh-uh-hun-uh-no. Yes I am now actually singing that Beyonce song, and no it has nothing to do with the forever and ever part of it. It’s actually gotta do with literally putting a ring on IT, ‘it’ being one of your fabulous fingers and swaging your swag to wherever it is you’re going. And that’s exactly what I did: on the gloomiest December morning ever, when it was so cold outside you could barely breath, so foggy I couldn’t see my feet, I put a ring on it, took my photographer pal with me, and shot some pics of my Dragon inspired self.

Let me tell you the story. A while ago I teamed up with an amazing talented young jewellery designer Andrey Koshman from – KOSHMAN RINGS brand – and after the most terrifying and beautiful designing and brainstorming process ever we came up with a Men’s RING that has super powers.

Each ring is made to order and you can get yours here – Men’s Rings – by KOSHMAN RINGS

koshman-man-ring-dragon-skin-thefashiontag-27 koshman-man-ring-dragon-skin-thefashiontag-32

This men’s ring represents all the energy of one of the most powerful and dangerous magical creatures ever: Dragons. They don’t care of what others think about them. They are smart and wise, and powerful enough to do whatever they want. This men’s ring doesn’t make you a dragon, it just reminds that you already are one. – Andrey Koshman

The idea of a Dragon skin ring was simply love at first sight for me, as it embodies everything I adore about both fashion and life: contrasts. It’s strong, polished, it’s got swag, but it’s minimal, it’s got a rocknroll vibe, but it’s also urban hip hop dope, it’s got so much meaning and power to it, and it’s a piece of art at the end of the day, which always leads to you feeling a certain type of empowerment and coolness when you put it on.

 

Jewellery wise it’s so well created and crafted it feels both heavy and precious on your fingers. I’m wearing it in silver, and although I always go for gold in jewellery, I adored it this way. Something about silver makes it unearthly and incredibly powerful in a very masculine and sharp way. It has that cold steeliness and high polished indifferent beauty to it, a certain kind of magical power that sent me away to some land where ‘Game of Thrones’ characters live side by side with Dragons, and there’s a code of honour, there are love affairs and stories, and passions, and it’s always cold, and fashion always creeps its way in there somehow, in tiny details like rings, and fur, and leather.

koshman-man-ring-dragon-skin-thefashiontag-26

THE DRAGON SKIN RING by KOSHMAN RINGS X FashionTag is a men’s ring at the end of the day, a bit too large for my tiny fingers, BUT who cares, I’m wearing it either way and if you’re a woman with a penchant for powerful statements, art, beauty, and fashion you’ll love it as well. I paired it today with a few other silver rings for a full on effect.

If you’re a man… you have to wear it. I love men who aren’t afraid to wear rings. Big, bold rings that always have a hidden meaning behind them, rings that speak about their style, their loves, their worlds, their taste in life, music, fashion.

1koshman-man-ring-dragon-skin-thefashiontag-24

koshman-man-ring-dragon-skin-thefashiontag-07

HOW TO WEAR IT? We wanted to make a ring that is a perfect jewellery choice for men with a strong character and a strong sense of style. The Dragon Skin Ring is the perfect marriage of fashion and art and that makes this piece a very sleek but versatile one. It is precious and powerful enough to work so well into a smart and refined, elegant, and very city professional style. Even slightly retro if you will.

OR if you’re a man seeking and living advetures and have a more eclectic look or even more urban – be it rocknroll, punk, or hiphop I am telling you the ring is the dopest thing ever. It blends and stands out as well.

I LOVE that it’s minimal and sleek, but it’s also very heavy, strong, bold, and edgy with its dragon skin texture and that cold and heavy steeliness. The packaging is fabulous and it’s art in itself. I adore it, and will be wearing it forever and ever, men ring and all.

The Dragon Skin Men RingKOSHMAN Rings 

Thank you Andrey Koshman for this incredible opportunity, for allowing me to express myself and create beyond my comfort zone, for challenging me, and at the end of the day for this incredible outcome, which I’m so proud and humbled to be part of. The Dragon Skin Ring is a project closest to my heart and I love it for what it looks like, but mostly for all it stands. I like to think of myself as a strong but sensitive woman, and for me, that is exactly what the ring represents.

Aside from black – which is like the ultimate favourite colour for moi, I think RED comes pretty close in line, because I think every now and then, whether it’s for a daytime posh look, or for evening doing the monochrome trend in RED is beyond. It’s the greatest style statement. It’s powerful, very sexy, polished, and classic.

dana-cristina-straut-evening-casual-jumpsuit-thefashiontag-1 dana-cristina-straut-evening-casual-jumpsuit-thefashiontag-5

From the start I pictured I’d wear it draped in red from head to toe, hence my look for today’s style post: red lips, red fringed bag, red stiletto shoes. I kept the bling minimal, which is a first for me, but I really wanted to show off how incredible the jumpsuit stands alone. It’s golden belt is enough jewellery to give it razzmatazz.

Being a tall giraffe, with human features nonetheless, I was a tiny bit scared the jumpsuit would’t fit sans the camel toe. The tall girls out there know what I mean. But I fit like a glove. Amen to that.

Not only that, but it became my fave go-to-piece for a very posh hot look. It’s also very versatile, being made of a fabric that could stand the test of daytime but also be the queen of the evening.

It’s incredibly easy to put on, with the deep V-neckline giving it a sexy oomph if you wish, but the same time it’s made like a blazer neckline, so you can wear it as a decolatage or not, depending on your mood.

The cinged waist is a perfect touch of feminine and the pockets give a perfect relaxed effortless vibe. This makes it ok for you to wear it for office, for casual weekends with comfortable shoes.

I am wearing the Rosalin Jumpsuit in RED 

evening-casual-jumpsuit-thefashiontag-19 evening-casual-jumpsuit-thefashiontag-20 dana-cristina-straut-evening-casual-jumpsuit-thefashiontag-35 evening-casual-jumpsuit-thefashiontag-38-dana-cristina-straut

Jumpsuits have become quite the staple lately, especially for evening get-together, and sophisticated occasions. THIS is precisely why I opted for a jumpsuit. It’s the definition of chic and refined done differently than your classic LBD par example.

I’m just gonna let the pics scroll down, of what a fantastic red-passionate-magic-hour us girls had that day. And yes… I did kinda feel like a star. Sans the red carpet. But in all red nonetheless.

When it comes to this style – Boyfriend T-shirts – which actually became quite a trend lately, hold on to your senses and don’t let the name fool you. There is only ONE thing we need in order to nail this look down to its core. And it’s not a human, contrary to the name it implies.

For the past couple of years fashion has started to pivot towards more androgynous looks, or at least more effortless, slouchier, looser styles and cuts. With the exception of a few refined sartorial timeless pieces for example, or our stilettos, or skinny jeans, everything else became men inspired. Our coats are sweeping the floors in one size too big, our sweaters are humongous, our blazers are borderline men-tuxedo, and so on.

In all this men inspired fad the BOYFRIEND T-SHIRT is without a doubt the king of the castle. It’s the #1 trend out there for quite a while. WHY? Because of it’s easiness and because a boyfriend t-shirt will always have that effortlessness and the exact loosens that we seek. It also feels kinda cool to wear men’s shirts and clash them with something feminine, and pull off this rocknroll, dope, relaxed look.

In this post I am wearing Jack of All Trades boyfriend T-shirts, all in size S, from the Men’s Rock’n Roll Collection.

5 WAYS TO WEAR BOYFRIEND T-SHIRTS

  1. All Tomboy-ish look. Boyfriend jeans, or a pair of suit trousers that sit a bit slouchier on you, with sneakers or brogues, a blazer on top of your boyfriend tee and a messenger bag. It’s very French chic if you will, very designer-stylist minimal kinda look.
  2. Office sophisticated. A boyfriend t-shirt is perfect for office due to its loose cut. You tuck it in your high waist pencil skirt of your perfect pair of trousers with heels or ankle boots on and it’s quite the effortless professional look. Watch the t-shirt though.
  3. Casual cool. Think models off duty running around Paris or London to casting jobs or just to get coffee with their other model friends. Jeans, ankle boots and a cool t-shirt on top. Leather jacket, shades, and a big bag and it’s the dopest most effortless style ever.
  4. Hot rocknroll. Sexy high heels and rad t-shirt. Simple as that. This is perfect for evening paired with a mini skirt or a pair of skinnies. Or just the long t-shirt playing as a dress if you’re Rihanna par example.
  5. A touch of feminine coolness. This has nothing to do with what you pair the tee with but mostly HOW you actually wear it. The great part about a boyfriend t-shirt is its size, which plays up its versatility. So you can wear it long, or tucked it, or tied at your back or on the side to mimic a cropped top. It’s perfect actually. I do this all. the. time. Especially when I feel I’m getting lost in a too-big-t-shirt.

As you all know its not the first time I’m seen in boyfriend tees, nor is it the first time I’m wearing men t-shirts from Jack of All Trades. They do have a saying that “once you go jack you’ll never go back.” Seriously… it couldn’t be truer. I mean their pieces are – quality wise – to die for. The tees’ fabric is unbelievable – soft and just a bit stretchy – and the cut is fantastic. I am wearing all men t-shirts, in S, but they’ve got the best cut ever: they’re loose, but I don’t look homeless in them. Especially the Beatles T-shirt is a perfect fit.

Design wise – personally I am a sucker for slogan tees AND band tees. It’s like they do the talking and introduction for you. So the fact that I am wearing Beatles or Guns’n Roses is by no means a thing left to chance. Nothing I do or say is ever random.

I wore my black skinny jeans and leather jacket, and switched the style a little bit with the help of shoes. I’ve always been a fan of clashed looks with a dash of sexy – hence my stiletto sandals for that boy-meets-girl style that is perfect for pretty much any occasion, with a few tweaks (a pair of black pants and a blazer would make the look office appropriate for example).

Then I switched it up with something more casual and rocknroll by wearing cut-out boots. The bold lips and my favourite big bold bag add just the right amount of girl vibe to it all.
